The archaeological zone of Uxmal, one of the most visited in Yucatan in 2018 (around 55 thousand people), will have a new light and sound show, with the purpose of encouraging a greater influx of visitors to the site.
Until now, the most visited Maya zone in the State is Chichén Itzá, which annually registers little more than a million and a half tourists. The Patronato Cultur, responsible for the tourist resorts in the Maya areas, has a specific project to re-boost Uxmal, according to “El Universal”.
Part of it would be to completely renew its light and sound system, looking to turn it into an attraction for national and foreign tourists; especially because through the tourist cruises that arrive at the port of Progreso, a greater number of people from all over the world could be taken to this Maya archaeological site.
The director of Cultur, Mauricio Díaz Montalvo, considers to improve the conditions of the paradores turísticos of all the Maya zones in the state to attract more tourism. What is sought is that other archaeological sites also generate the same level of interest and demand from foreign tourists, as in the case of Chichen Itza, since all archaeological sites feature great elements of the Maya culture.
Díaz Montalvo affirmed, among other things, that they will also invest in other places such as “El Corchito”, in the port of Progreso, because it can also be an important point to attract foreign visitors.
The light and sound of Chichén Itzá and Uxmal are spectacles that attract a lot of attention from foreign tourists and that “you have to make the most of it”, Montalvo concluded.
